Today was all about coding for my projects. My main focus was my project on Chingu. I’m actually the last man standing in the group. All of my team mates abandoned the project. That’s not going to stop me though. I’ll make sure that this project is complete.
Before I started with this project, I made some changes to the Protein Tracker Extension project that I was helping with. It’s an open source project. The product is close to launch and we wanted to create an easter theme. So, I created an easter logo and add an easter image.
I actually had a bit of a mishap with git while doing this. I forgot to merge the updated code with my old code. So, it pulled very old code. I didn’t want to have to deal with fixing the conflicts, so, I just cloned my repo again and created a new upstream.
After this, I focused on the chingu project. That’s when I really turn my beast mode on.
I started with just 1 feature finished. By the end of the day, I have seven done. I am basically halfway to fishing the project.
I am so happy because a couple of days ago, I felt so overwhelmed because of all the projects I have. To top it off, every single one of my chingu team quit. Two of them just went AWOL. But, I have to keep going. I signed on for this. I have to finish it.
This is probably one of the best days of my coding life. Not only did I manage to knock down all of those issues and features, I did it quite easily. Only a few months ago, doing something like this seems impossible. Now, it feels like I have been doing this for a long time.
So, if you ever get discouraged when you are learning how to code, DON’T BE. I am testament to the fact that when you work hard, study hard, and practice hard, you’ll get to a good place.
I still have a ton to learn but I’m confident that I’ll be able to get through any obstacle.
Alright, talk to you later.
